Paint colour for 1973 tx750 yamaha


Can duplicate the 73 paint but it is gold candy over silver metal flake.
  1. apply Grey primer sealer
  2. apply silver base coat, apply 3 coats
  3. apply silver metal flake mixed with clear, about 3 coats
  4. apply about 2 coats heavy clear
  5. sand clear smooth because metal flake makes it rough
  6. apply about 3 coats of tinted clear (candy gold or yellow)
  7. let it dry, inspect it, wet sand with 600 or finer
  8. apply final coats of clear to all parts except the fuel tank, apply only one coat to tank
  9. lightly wet sand the tank
  10. paint the gold and black striping on the tank, don't have any stickers and paint is thinner
  11. apply 3 medium coats of clear to the tank
  12. west sand with 1200 grit and polish all parts
  13. mix huge glass of good tequila, get lawn chair, sit back and admire
hope this helps

I have a Speed Triple 97' T-509, hardly used 5000 miles, the engining cover got scrapped on the right handside of the casing. I have tried serveral paint shops which they all say its a special heat...


The paint shops are likely correct, but there will be a number of powder coating shops that may be able to match the color. The powder coaters, coat many things like pool fencing.
You may have some success if you sand back the cover ,apply a aluminimum etch primer and then an epoxy paint.
The powder coating will probably last longer, as the alloy will eventually corrode under the paint and start to bubble.
If its a show quality bike, you may need to dig deep and get a new one from the trumpy dealer

Painting problem for 1979 Yamaha XS650


WHAT YOU HAVE IS A CHEMICAL REACTION THIS USUALY HAPPENS WHEN CELULOSE IN THE PAINT ATTACKS USUALY ACRYLIC PAINT WHEN THIS HAPPENS THE ONLY THING I WOULD RECOMEND IS HAVING THE FRAME OLD PAINT EITHER BURNED OFF WITH A BLOW TORCH OR HAVING IT SHOT BLASTED AND POWDER COATED WICH IS NOT THAT EXPENSIVE AND IT IS FAR SUPERIOR TO HAND SPRAYING AND LASTS FOR A VERY LONG TIME WITH A TOUGH FINISH
